  INTRODUCING OUR NEW RABBI 

 "RABBI ALTY" 

‚Äč

Rabbi Alty Weinreb is both a rabbi and a cantor.  He brings music, joy and scholarship into his services that engage the entire family. 

He draws from Hasidic, Israeli, and World Music traditions, as well as from contemporary music.  He is a singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist.  His love of music fills his spiritual life and constitutes a vital and substantial part of his Shabbat and Holiday services.  He seamlessly merges modernity with tradition. 

Rabbi Alty comes from a background of “Black Hat” Yeshivas and Hassidic synagogues.  After attending High School at Mirrer Yeshiva in Brooklyn, he spent an additional four years at the St. Louis Rabbinical College where he received a Bachelor of Judaic Studies, and Rabbinic Ordination from Dean Rabbi Yitzchak Kleinman.  Rabbi Alty attended Yeshiva University’s Belz School of music earning a BA in Cantorial Studies. He prepared many Bar and Bat Mitzvah students from Day Schools, Public Schools and Hebrew Schools, while making it fun for them to learn.  Rabbi Alty has brought his compassionate Jewish spirit to pastoral care, life-cycle events and children’s choirs.  Check out these videos:  https://youtu.be/75fmllRGoeg;   Alty Weinreb - YouTube

Prior to joining us at Temple of the High Country, Rabbi Alty served as Cantor at the  Congregation Shirat Hayam of Swampscott, MA, Temple Hillel in North Woodmere NY and Highland Park Temple in Highland Park NJ.

Rabbi Alty brings incredible energy, gentle wisdom and a deep commitment to Jewish values and Jewish learning.  Together with his wife, Elizabeth, he hopes to create a happy and spiritual home for the entire Temple of the High Country community.
